Although medical marijuana and even recreational use is allowed in other states, drug possession is still vigorously prosecuted and punished in Texas. A conviction carries both criminal penalties and collateral consequences for everything from employment to education.
It is critical to fight the charges, despite the dire warnings of police or prosecutors for refusing to "cooperate." Rush & Gransee, L.C., provides skilled and experienced representation for drug possession. Our criminal defense attorney has helped clients get charges dismissed or evidence thrown out, and he has helped clients beat the charges at trial or negotiate lesser penalties.

We have represented youths, college students and adults from all walks of life arrested on drug charges, including:
- Misdemeanor possession of marijuana or drug paraphernalia
- Possession of cocaine, heroin or other controlled substances
- Illegal possession of painkillers and other prescription-only drugs
- Possession with intent to distribute (possessing a large quantity)
Except for small amounts of marijuana, drug possession is typically charged as a felony, punishable by prison time, fines and other drug crime penalties. A felony conviction also cancels voting rights, gun rights and other civil liberties. A criminal record will affect job and housing opportunities, college options, scholarships or financial aid, coaching and volunteer positions.Serious Criminal Defense for Drug Charges
